Thromobectomy is surgical removal of a thrombus from a blood vessel by accessing via catheter, and removal may be followed by placement of a stent or filter. Medication might be used to prevent further clotting at the area.
Thrombectomy is used more rarely when immediate removal of a clot is needed.
